Undoubtedly you have already seen the research showing that sitting all day may increase the risk of diabetes, heart disease, obesity and weight gain and that using a standing desk can improve your health. But were you aware that a standing desk can also increase your productivity?
Standing desks are becoming increasingly more popular these days. In this article we wanted to share some of the important benefits a MultiTable height adjustable desk offers:
- Burn More Calories
Lower your risk of weight gain. Ease in to your new desk, but be sure that even standing for the afternoon will burn more calories than sitting!
- Lower Your Blood Sugar Levels
By being active, taking more steps while working will help lower your blood sugar levels. Focus on standing after lunch time! A good tip is to raise your desk right before you go to lunch.
- Stand Up for Your Heart
Spending more time on your feet is simply better for your heart.
- Reduce Back & Neck Pain
Studies show that back pain and neck pain is reduced even after just several weeks of using a sit to stand desk at work. Ergonomic desk accessories help too! Check out our products for more information.
- Better Mood – Less Stress. Less Fatigue.
Sedentary time is linked to increased risk of depression and anxiety. Increase vigor and energy by standing during the day. It’s just better.
All these add up to better health and greater productivity. Feel better, do more! And easy does it… Be sure to split your time 50/50 between standing and sitting.
These are just a few reasons to consider taking a stand for your health so you can work well and be well!
